not know if the health-care cost dragon has been slain or is just hibernating. how much of the slow increase comes from the sluggish economic recovery where people without insurance postpone care over which they don't have any kind of discretion at all, and what about the chronic conditions that continued the development of more sophisticated and expensive treatments and tasks? and for the most expensive health care program there is the fact that 10,000 baby boomers are joining me in the over 65 club every day. despite the encouraging numbers about 2011 there is still a lot about this issue to be discussed and analyzed. and here we are with what i think is going to be a very good program on that topic. we are fairly pleased to have, as our partner in today's program, the commonwealth fund. and we are especially pleased to have as our co-moderator today, dr. david blumenthal. i will mention that his policy an analyst -- on top of his policy and analytical expertise he is a care -- welcome to your first online briefing as the head of commonwealth. we are pleased to have you here. >> i

, on national tv, that this government proposal we have is just one more choice for healthcare, and you can keep your private insurance you want it, at the time someone should have pointed out, wait a minute, if people don't have any choice what happens to their healthcare, their employer will decide. 200 million people have healthcare taken through employer paid insurance? so what choice do you and i if if we're working for dupont, what happens to our choices? now you know it costs a thousand per worker to insure a worker with health care and the government fine if you don't follow it is $2,000. so it's a perfect incentive to move more people off private insurance and health and human services as sebelius said, the private healthcare insurance industry is in a death spiral. of course they're in a death spiral. that the intention. if you eliminate then it's easier to move to singing-payer system which president obama has said, this is his goal and might take five, seven, eight, ten years. >> we're going next to ken and then alex and robert and then alicia, tom, chris, and lauren fox toned. >> i

what are people concerned about that health-care costs. to a lesser extents one economic growth is stronger, maybe they're worried about issues related to the environment. these are not issues that republicans like to talk about. they're not issues that are good at talking about. this is where it emerged in the late 1990's from a time when bill clinton had been something republicans up and down washington. the whole point of bush was to craft a republican party that had something to say about education. something like the prescription drug bill was too big and should have been paid for. the republican party will never give back to the wilderness. we have to keep our brand pure and make sure americans and no where the party of small government. americans are confident that the republican party is the party's small government. they did not vote for the republican party. it is possible that he should not nominate mitt romney next time and get a true conservative, if you look at opinion polls, barack obama won the election because people thought he cared about people like us. that i

,000 a year because of smoking-related deaths. where do these costs come from in healthcare? >> somebody has to pay them obviously. we know this equation that they create more healthcare costs for the system. but as you point out, tucker, this could be considered preexisting condition. it's addictive. if you are addicted to cigarettes and you are a smoker and you have some of these health conditions. you have preexisting conditions. if you are overweight from all -- all of these are personal responsibilities. if you are overweight from overeating not a preexisting condition. >> insurance companies ought to be able to decide what they charge people. of course people voluntarily taking big health risks ought to pay more. there is no reason why people who don't watch their weight. only smokers are being single out. why is that? not because they're the most expensive. smokers save the system money because they die earlier. they take less out in social security. this is not one crackpot's opinion. that's a fact. smokers are unpopular, unpopular people wind up being penalized disproportionately. o
